Chrétien de Troyes

An Analytic Bibliography: Supplement I

Douglas Kelly

The supplement to the 1976 original bibliography reflects the expanding scope of modern Chrétien studies, including items from around the world, with the assistance of an international team of scholars.
The Supplement builds on and completes the Chrétien de Troyes Bibliography first published in 1976. Together the two volumes constitute the fullest and most complete bibliographical source now available on this major medieval author. Chrétien de Troyes bequeathed a corpus of highly original and widely influential Arthurian romances. Indeed, his direct or indirect influence continued throughout the middle ages and beyond into modern times. The Bibliography permits students of medieval romance to quickly identify the areas in which Chrétien scholarship has been active. Items are listed under twenty-two topics, with numerous sub-sections under each topic, and cross-references for items that treat more than one of the topics. The broad geographic and linguistic scope of modern Chrétien studies is evident in items not only from western Europe and North America, but also from the growing body of medieval scholarship in eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, and Australasia. To ensure accuracy and completeness, the editor has been assisted by scholars competent in the many languages in which Chrétien studies are now published, most notably in Japanese, Welsh, Rumanian, Hungarian and Polish, as well as by other scholars and librarians who generously provided assistance and information in finding items difficult to access.

An enormous contribution not only to research on Chretien but also to literary studies throughout the European Middle Ages. Kelly and his collaborators deserve our commendation and gratitude.... A print bibliography such as this one remains of immense value.... Will become an essential tool and will be welcomed by medievalists. SPECULUM It would be churlish not to recognize the enormous contribution this invaluable volume makes to Chretien studies. YEAR'S WORK IN MODERN LANGUAGE STUDIES A major research tool. It will prove immensely helpful to anyone studying Chrétien de Troyes or related areas. MEDIUM AEVUM, 2004
